About Us

We are cognitive psychological scientists interested in research on education. Our main research focus is on the science of learning. (Hence, "The Learning Scientists"!)

Our Vision is to make scientific research on learning more accessible to students, teachers, and other educators.

We aim to :

  • Motivate students to study
  • Increase the use of effective study and teaching strategies that are backed by research
  • Decrease negative views of testing

This is not a product or a sales pitch - just science!

Interested in how we got started? We wrote about our story in "The Learning Scientists: Our Story." (it's fun and informative!)
